the vote on november 6. we will ask george w. bush's chief of staff, andy card about how the narrative would be different if president bush was in office today. we have been hearing a lot about that some other news outlets today. why there was a potential cover-up on a terror attack on u.s. soil, where is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of
of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in southern california and the muslim world is really angry. if you want to hedge your bets, okay. but they didn't. they went all in -- >> i'm going to apologize for them for wanting to get all the facts before they opened up their mouths and started blabbering. >> they did open up their mouths and start blabbering. >> i'm going to cut them a little slack for wanting to get all the facts before they go out and say it was a te
al gore was debating george w. bush in 2000, al gore, the vice president of the united states, was seen as a great debate, george w. bush not so much. but then al gore, you know, had some fumbles and in terms of the sighing he did and a lot of people were paying attention to that. and bush all of a sudden looked a whole lot better. these debates can be significant for relatively trivial things like that, if, for example, and you remember when the first president bush, george h.w. bush, you know, at one of the presidential debates started looking at his watch and it looked like he was ready to move on. let's get out of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made up their minds. they're going to be watching the three presidential debates, the one vice presidential debate in october. and they'll make up their minds. i think all t
. they have tended to come in bunches. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who leaves. >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilities, the probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often are surprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as predicted. sure there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surprised by chief justice roberts' vote
w. bush, the ideological bias has not changed but they never covered george w. bush like he was going to lose. >> chris: you look like you will come out of your chair. >> look, the media has been covering this year's events, as if the only thing that matters is who wins in november. we've actually had a president of the united states for the last year, who has spent, i bet, go through his daily schedule, i bet spent 80% of his time running for re-election. i submit if that were a republican president, on a day like we had last week at the u.n., that appeared on a more entertainment focused show, but couldn't meet with our most important ally in the middle east, and that was a single member of a family who has been hit by one of these insider attacks in washington, i believe the media would be going nuts. i... >> chris: it is -- wait, wait, wait. juan. >> clearly, the president went to the ceremony, for ambassador stevens and met with the family. i think this is republican conspiracy. there is... if you give the media the 47% statement, if you give the media clint eastwood, i
. >> mika, as we've been saying for some time both on and off the air, if the president was george w. bush and he had said that the middle east going up in flames was a, quote, bump in the road, george w. bush would have been absolutely skewered by the press. >> at the same time, is it fair to say that the romney campaign and mitt romney himself have seized upon things too quickly and almost looked a little almost like a dog pulling on someone's leg? >> they've been hand-fisted. >> let me ask you this. >> they made a mistake. in fact, even internally inside the romney campaign, they know now that the libyan press conference, the day after, they will all tell you, was an absolute mistake, and that showed up in the polls. >> here's my question, then. because congressman peter king is calling on susan rice to step down, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said t
that in 1984, reagan's first debate was a disaster. george w. bush's debate was a disaster. i don't think it will be a disaster. but you saw on the univision interview. when you are abe incumbent president you are not used to being challenged. bill: what do you think the impact of a potential exchange like we just watched will have on this 15% rasmussen is talking about? >> rich is right. it depends on what it is. there was another debate moment in 2008 that seemed to change the trajectory a little bit. remember when hillary was told people don't like her and she said that hurts my feelings and it was kind of like funny, self-deprecating moment, and it seemed to move women voters in a way. you can't ever really know. there could just be some sort of moment that moves people in a certain direction, though. i think the bigger issue is mitt romney making people feel like i'm a goodall tern tough to obama. you are not that happy with him or you wouldn't be undecide or persuadable. but i'm safe. i'm somebody you can trust with the future. bill: the audience is enormous. 50 million americans wi
under president obama as compared to the george w. bush years. >> dave: from george w. bush and not free from criticism. 4.9 trillion dollar increase in the nation's debt. but here we are three years into the obama presidency talking 5.36 trillion dollar increase in our nation's debt. that's pretty simple to fact check. i'm surprised joe biden continues to bait those fact checkers, with statements like that. that's a pretty-- that's a slam-dunk. >> alisyn: because people don't listen to his speeches with the calculator out and listen with their guts and resonates. they have been saying the same thing for the better part of almost four years so it must be working on the campaign trail with them. >> dave: and doing some hypnotizing before that. stare into the pen. >> alisyn: all right. let's get to your headlines, because, to tell you about right now. there was another insider attack that claimed the life of a soldier and contractor. 2000 american troops killed in afghanistan sense the war began. iran's president ahmadnejad says threats mean nothing, and the u.s. does not allow iran the ac
card is a former white house chief of staff under president george w. bush, and he's with me now. andy, so now the administration is going silent on it, saying we're not going to respond to this bombshell report out of congress that this is from the house oversight committee saying that they've got a bun p of whistleblowers who are now saying they were begging for more security other in libya at our consulate and not only was it not provided, but jason chafe fess was on fox news saying it had been downgraded, security had been diminished in part, and that, he says, was the prelude to the 9/11 attack which then, of course, resulted in four dead americans and evolved into this strange place, andy can, where now we've got reports that a dozen, a dozen intelligence reports went up to administration officials saying this is terror, it was an al-qaeda-linked group. and five days after they send susan rice on the round of sunday talk shows. what is going on here? >> well, it's all very troubling to me. first of all, if, in fact, we were asked to beef up the security at our consulate in bengha
. >> let me say this, if this were george w. bush and this happened on his watch, how would the media have covered it. >> they would be calling for not just an investigation but far greater than that. >> would it have been covered far monday than it was. >> i don't know. these hypotheticals are hard toe. no that's certainly what critics say because it's the obama administration and so many members of the mainstream media are liberal. it's not getting the national and international attention it needs. have you been pointing out a lot of coverage in print media and a lot of coverage to the evening news. morning news where the majority of americans who still watch television get their news, it's the morning news shows that media research center shows that good morning america and "the today show" have been woefulfully inadequate in their coverage of this. >> here is the general media coverage on everything. take a look at this hole poll out from news organizations spending more time defending president obama. 47% in this poll to 16% for defend will romney they say or 21% both. and this poll t
political question, obama uses the bush middle class cuts, but that's just an extension of what george w. bush put in place. what romney is saying, he's going to up the ante from here. why doesn't mitt romney make that case? >> you saw romney go almost halfway, he talked about the tax cut, but he has to go back to that reagan model and talk about this and talk about that take home pay. they have to have an idea of what they're getting in a law. that's so important for milt romney in a debate. he has to bring people, he has to bring heart to supply side politics and that's what happened. this is the most important day in mitt romney's life, there's no question, david's going to remind us that obama is leading in the polls, this is really make or break. do you think romney will do it? do you expect to hear a sharp, clear message on lowering middle class tax rates, and do you think he'll do it? and a pro growth package. >> i these he'll make a passioned plea for the economic tax cuts he's already talked about. i don't think he's going to pound home that message. i think paul ryan did. maybe
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
on this day, in 2000, al gore was ahead of george w. bush by two points. bush was leading him by about three points going into the last weekend, it went all the way to the supreme court. at this point, in 1980, carter was leading reagan by four. there was a gallup with five days left that had him up by six. so, i'm not particularizing this to chuck. but the pollsters and the press don't decide who shows up. the people who decide who shows up are the people who are knocking on doors, ringing doorbells, making phone calls and i think there's going to be a lot of surprises. >> ed rendell, a lot of republicans, like ralph like to go back to the reagan race. the difference is i've discussed this week with some pollsters. he was 20 points up after his this convention. we've seen his ability to create wide swings, we haven't seen that in this race. we're in a much more polarized time in this election. >> look, we all know that the challenger gets a big bump in the first debate. there's no question. just appearing on the stage with the president, looking presidential and boy, mitt romney looks presi
was hoping a lot of people that voted for george w. bush would say, i don't like the things worked out, i'll go with kerry. they split down the middle, enough to let bush stay in office. >> i thought it was interesting that the voters said, i'm changing my vote, i'm changing my vote. that was the predominant message of the obama campaign in 2008, you know, change, we saw on the signs, the banners. you really see that the romney campaign is trying to tap into those voters, really co-op them from the obama campaign. >> greta: i thought it was a two-fer. i thought it was also an effort to get the women. you know, they could have put men in there, found some men. michael, the women vote was important, certainly in '96. >> that struck me as well. this is a running theme with the romney campaign in the homestretch. you know, i took one thing away from that convention in tampa, it was we love you, women, women are special, women are great. a lot of the romney advertising has a very -- has had a very heavy female presence. they have a budge big deficit wh women, and they're trying to close it. >>
to absolutely force voters away from george w. bush because he had done so well with black and hispanic voters in texas. the reason i disagree with you about this obama thing i think that when i hear about welfare president, food stamp president -- >> sean: he is the food stamp president. >> that's so ridiculous. he took office 32 million americans were on food stamps, now 49 million. >> let me tell you, the only reason that mitt romney's in this race right now is white man, and some old seniors who are -- >> sean: the percentage of the white vote will go to obama. >> oh, come on. >> we're desperately trying to get the white vote. republicans, it is a one-sided dislike here. republicans have been trying -- all blacks were republicans at one point. it's always republicans appealing to black voters. >> sean: we're on a hard break. we'll come back. more with ann and juan as they respond to this insanity coming up next. >> everybody in cleveland that minority got obama phone. keep obama in president, you know. [ male announcer ] when this hotel added aflac to provida better benefits package... oah
in 2004, george w. bush was 6, 7 points ahead of john kerry. he didn't prepare well. he came across as slightly impatient. he's the president of the united states, why am i debating this guy? and that race went from a six-point race to a one-point race in 48 hours. i think barack obama has to be careful. that he doesn't come across irritable or impatient. >> or running out the clock. >> perform well from a mannerism standpoint. if he doesn't, this race goes a one-point race. we're all sitting around, what happened. >> donna brazile, matt dowd brings up the mannerisms. you were in the al gore camp, everyone thought that he cleaned george bush's clock, in that debate, but on mannerisms he ended up losing. >> george, many of us remember the split screen. al gore was sitting there, rolling his eyes, looking at george bush and basically, he started to sigh. >> did president obama have that vulnerability. >> look, i think governor romney speaks in perfect sound bites. i attended many of those republican debates. one thing that he's very good at is turning a negative question, a question d
that they are covering him as if he is losing. they never covered george w. bush like he was going to lose. >> you look like you are going to come out of your chair. >> the media has been covering this year's events as if the only thing matters is who wins in november. we actually had a president of the united states for the last year who has spent i bet if you go through his daily schedule i bet it spent about 80% of his time running for reelection. if that were a republican president on a day like we had last week at the u.n. that appeared on a more entertainment focused show but could not meet with our most important ally in the middle east and not with a single member of a family hit by unwith of the insider attacks in washington i believe the media would be going nuts. >> chris: wait, juan? >> clearly the president went to the ceremony for ambassador stevens and met with the families. i think this is republican conspiracy. >> the fbi still isn't in benghazi. >> if you give the media the 47% statement and give the media clint eastwoo eastwood ae offshore accounts people are going to write about the
lost his first debate 1984 came roaring back, won that election. same for george w. bush in 2004. will i am was warming up the crowd, the dj today in denver. at one point on his play list journaly's don't stop believing, trace. will i am' of the back eyed pleas. next up, the running mates, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan are set to face off in their owner debate one week from tonight. the v.p. says his practice sessions with congressman chris van holland are going well and is he looking forward to the real thing the thing about congressman ryan is he has been straightforward up to now about everything he is -- all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamentally different view on a whole range of issues. so i hope it will be a good debate. >> congressman ryan spent the past couple of days practicing as well with former solicitor general ted olsen playing vice president biden. shed, we'll be live in danville, kentucky for the vice presidential debate one week from tonight. while millions more viewers watched last night's debate than the first pr
are suggesting just are not flying with the american people. i got to say, i still think george w. bush gives the president some cover on this. if you start talking about susan rice having misled the people on benghazi. isn't it easy to point out the weapons of mass destruction argument? there's already a president who was re-elected in the context of actively -- active deception towards the american people. >> i think this is a bigger deal for susan rice if she wants to be secretary of state than barack obama being re-elected. >> you think susan rice is going to be secretary of state. i thought it was kerry. interesting. >> both those names are in the hat. >> senator kerry has given a lot -- a bit of cover to susan rice this week suggesting that in fact he believes that she handled it appropriately. >> i will contend this race isn't over yet. i hope they keep picking cabinet members. i'll give you some of our names in a little while. >> i went straight to second term there. sorry about that imt when is a debate not really a key bait? you might argue. -- all the stuff they won't talk about th
reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what
hampshire governor john sununu. he served as chief of staff under george w. bush. i read a quote from a white house spokesperson and she says he hasn't had t president because of the demands of the office, to work too much on debate preparation. what are your thoughts on that? >> spin, spin, spin. let him start spinning why his 3 1/2 years have been a failure. this is an important event. debates are important. the two candidates will stand side by side and the voters are going to get a chance to evaluate. and i can't believe how hard the white house is working to spin that the president, a, is not very goods, and b, that he had no chance to prepare. that's called buying two insurance policies in case he sceud up in the debate the way he screwed up as president. martha: your candidate has been dragging in ohio, michigan, and he's behind in florida where he was once ahead. what would be your advice? what would you tell mitt romney to do tomorrow night? >> i think the governor knows what he has to do is make sure people feel he has the capacity to fill the job. but more importantly, that
